Oprah did a special yesterday on homes. Many people have really pretty homes with gorgeous curtains and thick carpeting and large gold frames but sometimes there is not much reflecting the personality of those who inhabit them. Oprah’s friend Nate said a home must reflect the soul of its inhabitants and you can have a personalized house on every price point. So I started thinking of my own home. The heart of my home is my family room and kitchen… I remember how bare and empty the house looked when we first laid eyes on it, and how it bloomed to life over time and in part thanks to thoughtful gifts from friends and family. All ye bearing thoughtful gifts know this: They mean a lot to us because they come from the heart and add a new dimension of warmth to our home. Thank you! (some thoughtful gifts arent displayed because they aren’t used in the family room) Alhamdullilah its great to have you all in our lives (even though roughly 98% of you don’t read this blog- oh vell) What makes your house a home?
